Clean water is used only for the rinse cycle.” Bonilla has initiated other new pro- grams to go along with the new facility. For instance, the employees have uniforms that they helped choose the


material and colors for. “Now, everyone knows that a transportation employee with a red, or a red and black shirt with our emblem, is a driver-trainer. Drivers and monitors have blue, or blue and black shirts. My three dispatchers even have uniform shirts.” Bonilla recalled that his staff “tried


out several different styles of materials and shirts to find the most comfort- able ones. Our shop employees get a footwear allowance of up to $125. All of these changes make us look more professional. When transportation em- ployees are on a campus, they are easily distinguished.” Another Texas transportation depart-
